My Belle

Made of soft organic cotton and hemp fabrics, Belle’s stylish organic baby carriers are lightweight, breathable, and have natural antibacterial qualities. All of Belle’s products are manufactured in the U.S. Designed with an independent waist-belt and cross-over shoulder straps, this design transfers the weight off the shoulders and onto the hips, using the same principles as highquality outdoor backpacks designed to carry a large amount of weight.

Watkins wow

Winona, Minnesota-based J.R. Watkins has been around for ages, but it just launched a line of baby products sure to please. Including oils, balms, lotions, and head-to-toe wash, most formulas are at least 95 percent natural, with many 99 percent or more. Free of synthetic and irritating chemicals, and with 100 percent natural fragrances (rice flower and avocado), these products are super nice.

Keen Kiki

BPA free Pura Stainless Steel’s Kiki line offers parents a plastic free option for baby bottles. The electro-polished bottles are made from the highest quality, food service grade stainless steel making them resistant to corrosion and staining. Best, the feeding system even grows with your child, turning from a bottle with slow-flow silicone nipple to a medium-flow bottle, and then ultimately a sippy bottle with sip spout.

Petroleum free, paraben and phthalate free (among other things), this collection addresses baby’s sensitivities well.
